It finally happened. I got my waffles! After craving them for about a month, Michael took me to Shari’s for dinner last night!
Look how heavenly it was! I had a Belgian Waffle with strawberries, whipped cream, and sugar free syrup (I know, right?). Of course, the one picture of me I look cross-eyed! Oh well.
One thing I do with food is talking myself out of food. I told Michael it was silly to go out for waffles and even more ridiculous to eat 129 grams of Carbs in one meal!!! But the BF said I was being silly and that we were going out for waffles. And I’m glad I did. The craving is satisfied. I devoured the food and enjoyed every bite!
Michael has a good system for food, which I’ve tried to adopt: The 90/10 Rule. That means eat healthy and sensible 90% of the time and splurge 10% of the time. I was already kind of doing this: eating sensible and allowing myself to have treats once in awhile. It’s important in weight loss to NOT completely deny yourself food. That is a recipe for disaster.
Breakfast this morning was a toasted Sandwich Thin with cream cheese on it and two fried eggs.
I drank an Emergen-C drink too.
QUESTION: What’s a craving you want to give in to?
